For just short of 900 years, this parish has been a site of Christian worship, community and service, blessed with magnificent architecture. Today, all the work of our two splendid churches continues to be sustained by the stewardship of our congregations.

All Christians are called to stewardship. As stewards, we celebrate and give thanks for the joy and inspiration we find through our local church. As stewards, we give what we can, in time and money. It is about our responsibility not to the church, but as the church.

The parish of Great Saint Bartholomew receives no money from the state or the Church of England. We are lucky enough to receive some unpredictable income from film companies and tourism, but it is not enough to cover our outgoings.
